I am my disabled husbands caretaker we have been married for 24 years and he has been disabled for ten. My husband is very strong willed and has a very ugly temper when pushed. He won’t follow instruction to help with his care and I am worn out. He has run off anyone who has cared at all for him. It is just me and my two teenagers who live and deal with him daily. I work full time to support our family and all I ask from my husband is to try and do things for himself yet he waits to be served. I feel stuck because I can’t afford help to come in or to put him in a nursing home. I guess my prayer is for strength and wisdom. Some days I’m so tired of dealing with him I want to take the kids and leave but who will care for him and how will I live with that guilt? Please pray for him, me, and our family.
